With the BonFeu BonPizza, you can experience the magic of pizza baking in your own backyard. In this blog, you will learn step by step how to prepare a delectable homemade pizza in the BonFeu pizza oven, so you can enjoy authentic Italian flavours without leaving your home.
Step 1: Preparation and dough preparation
Before you start, it is important to have all the necessary ingredients to hand. For this, proper preparation is important. You will need the following: flour, yeast, water, salt, olive oil, tomato sauce, cheese and your favourite pizza toppings such as vegetables or meat.
Start by making the pizza dough. Mix the flour, yeast, water, salt and a dash of olive oil in a bowl. Knead the dough well until it feels smooth and elastic. Then let the dough rest and rise until it has doubled in size.
Step 2: Preheat the BonFeu pizza oven
While the dough is rising, it’s time to preheat the pizza oven. Add firewood to the bowl and light it. Let the flames burn well until the wood glows and a steady heat is created. Next, place the pizza oven on the stand and secure it to the BonBiza. Allow the heat to heat up for about 30 to 45 minutes.
Step 3: Roll out the dough and add toppings
When the dough has risen well, divide it into smaller pieces and roll out each piece into a thin round shape. Place the dough on a floured work surface to prevent sticking.
Now it’s time to get creative with the toppings. Add a generous amount of tomato sauce and top the pizza with your favourite ingredients such as cheese, vegetables, meat or herbs. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new flavour combinations.
Step 4: Bake like a professional
Carefully scoop up the pizza with the BonFeu pizza Spatula and move it to the preheated oven. Close the oven door and let the magic take effect. The intense heat of the oven will ensure a crispy crust and perfectly melted cheese.
Keep an eye on the pizza as it bakes. The baking time can vary depending on the thickness of the crust and the toppings chosen. After a few minutes, you can remove the pizza from the oven when the crust is golden brown and the cheese is nicely bubbling.
Step 5: Enjoy your masterpiece
Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a while before cutting it. This will give the cheese time to become slightly firmer so you can easily cut nice pieces. With the BonFeu Pizza Wheel, you can easily cut through the crispy crust and divide the pizza well into pieces. Take a bite of your delicious pizza and enjoy the explosion of flavours coming together.
With the BonFeu Pizza oven, you can enjoy delicious homemade pizza in your own backyard every time. Experiment with different toppings, develop your own favourite recipes and share this amazing experience with your family and friends.
